Switch: May 15th!

Quick and easy, folks!

We have a release date for the Switch! It'll be hitting stores on May 15th. We had hopes it wouldn't take this long, and while the Switch wasn't a part of the original Kickstarter campaign, we greatly appreciate the patience from those who chose to wait for this version of the game. 

More info about delivery of physical copies and keys will be coming in the next week or so. We'll be working with THQNordic to try and get physical backers their copies day one, but this time all shipping will come from the US since our international backers had a hard time getting their copies. We'll do our best to get those out on time as well.

Physical Rewards

As a reminder, if you have physical rewards coming, please log into your account on www.battlechasers.com and choose a t-shirt size, and make sure you have shipping info saved on your survey. Without this, we can't ship your stuff!

On that note, the art books are in hand:

We also got proofs on the art prints today. We aren't quite happy with the paper stock which feels too thin, so we're trying something thicker. The print quality is great, though!

Also, scope out the updated design for the 8.5x11 print!

Joe is also hard at work scribbling away on the sketchies. Those and any other Joe Mad originals will be shipped separately from the core physical rewards.

Things are lining up. Apologies it hasn't happened faster, but thanks for hanging in there with us. We appreciate it!

      Yes please give an update on Switch delivery, we're coming up on 3 months since we were supposed to get keys, with no information.

    5. Brett "2D" Bean on

      Yes, please some news on the switch for those of us who supported. People who randomly find you is great and tell me how fun the game is that I supported, but have yet to play....

      Waiting on my key. The lack of responses is a real fucking bummer. I hate that I can see it on the Switch eStore, but my early support of your product means that I don't get to enjoy it. We're the people who cared about your game the most, and we're being screwed the most for it. What a hucklebuck.

      Any ETA for Switch codes? I'm a backer and am really wanting to play!

    9. Ryan Stark on

      Really bummed no Switch Key yet. Can we get some sort of compensation from THQ Nordic or are just boned?

    10. Jake Walters on

      I'm starting to get a little irritated, been waiting for ages for the game. Now non-backers are getting their Switch copies before us. Are there any updates on when we'll finally get those codes?

    11. Marco Brugnoni on

      just for record, a friend of mine received the phisical copy today, in Italy.
      He's not a backer, he just bought yesterday from Amazon.it.

      good job everyone.

    12. Ben Dombek on

      I still haven't gotten a code for the switch version I selected on your website, is that coming tomorrow when the game releases?

    13. Eric S Turgott Jr on

      Can’t select switch as a platform to receive still, what’s up?

    14. Patrick Liu on

      Any update on Switch delivery? I haven't heard anything since this post.

      Definitely will wait for the switch version. Need that digital key code asap. Can't wait.

    16. Ontosh Ko on

      Will switch version also have globalmap glitch, like it is now on PC and not being fixed?

    17. varsas on

      Great news but is there any news about the new issues of the comic book series?

    18. Joshua Brumley on

      Yay! It'll be in by the time I come back for home time. Sweet! :)

      I cant even play modern gameso nmy console, so I am just goign to keep the physical copy, though it might eventually get buried under piles of collectibles, porn, and bdsm equipment. HAAARd. jk jk,,,,O>o .

      Any chance that those that recieved our copies of the game pay extra to get a copy of the artbook or a Switch copy of the game?

    21. Studio Gattai on

      Nevermind! Just checked the rewards site and found it there!!

    22. Studio Gattai on

      Any word on the availability of digital copies of the artbook?

    23. Victor Campa

      Outstanding news! I have no doubt that the Nintendo Switch version will absolutely be worth the wait! But on that note, can those of us that backed the project at a tier with a digital copy receive that on the Switch as well? And if so, could that happen sooner than May 15th?

    24. Joseph Hedges on

      Aw, the alternate print is so much cooler than the one in my $200 package lol
